Well exactly as the title says, I was wondering what (If there is) the step up from cable modem is, but a step down from T1? Any ideas are welcome!

Please give an estimate price if you have an idea.

Tanks!

IMHO a step up from a cable modem would be xDSL becuase it's a dedicated pipe versus a shared medium that cable subscribes get. But a step down from a T1 becuase when xDSL goes down nobody cares until you call it in where a T1 typically is monitored and gets better support and mean time to repair.

You can get DSL in different speeds. Try getting the highest possible DSL speed in your area.

I was going to say something quite similar :)

However, in my humble opinion - dsl speeds can never be as fast as cable - at least thats my experience here in Toronto (I mean a phone line is only so thick :) - probably not the case, but, personally, I never thought DSL could achieve the same limits as co-axial cable)

Anyway, I recently upgraded to the highest end Rogers cable package - and its 2 mbps up and 10 mbps down - pretty good speeds and they have been able to deliver on it (for under $200 a month, Im not complaining at those speeds :) )

Another great option is wireless internet - where providers are selling what they call "wireless T1" for around 1/3 the price of a true "wired" T1. If its available in your area, definately something to look at ....

Hope this helps....

I agree, but you might be able to get frac t1 line for low 200's. Which is not bad.
